Short summary
Global ST datasets have been blamed for underestimating the recent warming trend. This study merged ERSSTv5 with our newly developed C-LSAT, producing a global land and marine surface temperature dataset – CMST. Comparing with existing datasets, the statistical significance of the GMST warming trend during the past century remains unchanged, while the recent warming trend since 1998 increases slightly and is statistically significant.
